Now you can have your cake and wear it too!

I was asked to do a tutorial for this so, here it is!

I'm sorry I didn't take pics along the way :(
I did my best to show you several views of this so you can get a good idea of how it was done :D

Good luck!

    Strawberry:
    Use Fondasaurusrex's tutorial for the strawberry @ http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/simple_felt_strawberry

    I used gold thread to create the seeds on the outside.
    Set aside.

    Step 4

    Cake Step 1:
    Cut two identical pieces of your poly foam in a triangle shape that measures 4"X3" and glue together.
    Round the 3" portion a tad before gluing for a more realistic look.
    Glue pink felt along the two long sides (this will be the 'inside' of the cake).
    Glue the rickrack and 'cream' to the middle and edges, use push pins to hold it in place.

    Step 5

    Cake Step 2:
    Now that your glue is dry, cut and glue white felt to cover the top and 'back' of your cake.
    It's a good idea to add your 'icing' ribbon at the same time so you can tuck the ends under the white felt.
    Turn your cake slice over and glue the decorative lace to the bottom.
    Remember to use your push pins!!

    Step 6

    Plate/Base:
    Cut out 2 circles measuring 4.75" out of your white material (mine had a white print on white to mimic fine china) and 1 circle of the same size out of stiff fusible interfacing.
    Make a sandwich out of them so the the interfacing is in the middle and right sides of the fabric is facing out.
    Follow the instructions for the interfacing.
    Trim your edges if necessary.
    Cut two .5" slits in the center about 2" apart and thread your 4' lace ribbon through it.

    * You can also choose to run a head band through or attach clips instead.

    Step 7

    Assemble:
    Glue the strawberry to the top, then glue the cake to the base.
    Secure it with push pins.
    FIN!

    Step 8

    Tips:
    * You don't need globs of glue... just a dab will do.
    * Dimples are cute, but not on your cake...the glue will hold whatever shape your material is in when you secure it with push pins.
